Take ordinance route to save jobs: Cong.

first_imgSenior Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala on Friday accused Haryana’s ruling BJP government of failing to save the interest of thousands of employees, a day after the Punjab and Haryana High Court quashed the State’s policy of regularising the services of contractual and ad hoc employees. He demanded that the State government immediately pass an ordinance for granting permanent status to the affected employees.Mr. Surjewala alleged that the State government neither put the entire facts before the High Court nor argued the case appropriately and effectively for the contractual and ad hoc employees. Six-month windowThe court, while nullifying the policy, offered a six-month window in which the State government must complete the process of filling up the Group B, C and D posts.The policy had been initiated by the previous Congress government led by Bhupinder Singh Hooda. “The 2014 regularisation policy framed during the Congress regime was not only legally sound but it also took due care of the interests of the ad hoc and contractual employees,” claimed Mr. Surjewala.Due rights“If the BJP government does not give temporary employees their due rights, then Congress would do justice to them all when it comes in power in the State,” he said.last_img
